Naturally Mediterranean’s Magic Hair Oil and Body Silk will make your hair look good naturally, but it’s good to be aware of some of the problems that can cause hair loss.

Hair loss is often distressing – especially for women. Remember, the hair is often referred to as the ‘crowning glory,’ so anything that renders it less glorious is likely to be upsetting.

Everyone naturally sheds between 50 and 100 hairs every day, but health issues can cause more significant hair loss. It is often the first indication of an underlying condition such as thyroid problems, diabetes or lupus, so excessive hair loss should always be investigated.

Alopecia Areata

This is an auto immune disease of unknown cause, though it often runs in families. Specialists think the disease may arise when the immune system suppresses the hair follicles. Hair loss is manifested as circular patches on the head and body. The condition is often temporary, but it can take some years for hair to grow normally again. Alopecia aerata can affect anyone, and often presents in families where there is a history of allergies or diseases of the immune system.

Lupus

Lupus affects the organs, and the skin is the biggest organ in your body. Rashes and inflammation in the skin on the scalp may lead to hair loss. You are unlikely to lose all your hair, and it often grows back once the lupus is treated.

Thyroid disease

Thyroid problems can lead to hair loss. This is because a defence mechanism in the body naturally inhibits activity in the hair cells to redirect the energy to other areas of the body where it’s needed most. When treatment is started, hair loss should decrease and eventually stop altogether.

That said, hair loss may be a side effect of some thyroid drugs. And if you still suffer hair loss following diagnosis and treatment, your medication may need to be adjusted to regulate thyroid activity.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a hormonal disease that can lead to hair loss. It has wide-ranging effects on the body’s normal processes, and that includes the hair growth cycle. Lost hair may take longer to grow back than normal, or might never grow back at all. Diabetes affects the circulation, so if the hair follicles don’t get all the nutrients they need for healthy growth, they could die off.

Hair loss can be distressing, but if it’s caused by a health condition, it can often be treated and cured. Don’t despair if your hair seems to be falling out. Remember that it’s very rare for women to suffer total hair loss due to disease. Often, a hormonal problem is the cause of hair loss and when this has been addressed, the hair will eventually grow back. In the meantime, the antioxidants contained in the argan oil in Naturally Mediterranean’s Magic Hair Oil and Body Silk will help your hair to grow back strong and shiny.
